But python-omniorb2 doesn't.  It seems to use a
-I/usr/include/omniORB4/internal switch to gcc to so it didn't show up
in a grep, only when I tried to compile it I noticed.

I'm tempted to include all the internal headers again and yet claim it
is still API compatible since they are not part of the outside API

Any objections?
